Relaxing and recharging or exploring and discovering—traveling provides you with that essential time for yourself, to do the things you really want. Experience the beautiful facets of Hawksnest Villa and the Island of St. John.
Experience everything the villa has to offer during your stay
A home away from the everyday—offering the utmost seclusion and spectacular views for the days when you are the only thing that matters.
Dining at the villa
And for those who prefer to spend their dining moments outside, there is a spacious terrace with a roofed dining table seating eight people comfortably. From here it is impossible to resist gazing at the stars or into the vastness of the Caribbean Sea at daylight.
Should you wish to have meals catered, there are a number of high quality on-call chef services available for hire that are familiar with Hawksnest Villa. Our estate managers will happily assist you in organizing a full in-villa dining experience.
Yoga above the water
Our external and trusted yoga instructors will refresh your mind & rejuvenate your body by offering innovative yoga sessions, such as Antigravity Yoga where you will hang loose to improve flexibility, or the more traditional yoga—we are delighted to make adequate arrangements.
Wellness with a view
Spa services range from massages, and facials to manicures and pedicures. Our estate managers will gladly take care of any bookings with our trusted external therapists and will handle everything for you before and after the session.
Relax & Recharge
Select your space and retreat area on the property and discover the murmur of the breeze and sounds of the sea. The sea wherever you look, from the terraces, from the rooms, from the sun bed you chose.
If conditions permit, you might even get a glimpse of the turtles in the bay as they emerge to the surface.
An ocean breeze puts a mind at ease - Explore the island by land, sea and air.
The Island of St. John is the smallest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands, but it has a lot to offer. It's one of the most charming and unique islands in the Caribbean and it captivates with its natural beauty.
Eco-tours in the national park
Over 60% of the Island is U.S. national park land and attracts visitors from all around the globe.
The national park offers more than just its beautiful beaches and unique marine life. There are more than 20 hiking trails on St. John with accessible boardwalks that let you wind through historic ruins or take you to a bird viewing deck on one of the fascinating salt ponds. Whether you hike on your own, or join a guided tour, make sure to visit the ancient Petroglyphs, the old Sugar Mill plantations or just hike to take in the views and lush green vegetations.
The National Park Visitor's Center is located in Cruz Bay and is a wonderful resource for planning your outdoor activities.
Cruz Bay has every basic need covered with its grocery stores, drug stores, gas stations, post office, banks and a communications center.
Caribbean Buzz Helicopters provides a variety of services and tours for the ultimate experience. You can also charter them for an airport transfer from St. Thomas airport straight to the helipad on St. John - by far the quickest option to travel.
Just a two minute drive from Hawksview Estate you’ll find Hawksnest Beach. The snorkeling is particularly good along the north shore past Gibney Beach. Seahorses, spotted eagle rays, turtles, peacock flounder, groupers, and parrot fish are just a few of the sea creatures seen there.
Trunk Bay also features an underwater snorkeling trail which is worth checking out.
Maho Bay is long and shallow, perfect for young children, and is particularly famous for its turtles who inhabited the bay after the major hurricanes in 2017.
Dining on the island
Allow the estate managers to take care of any restaurant bookings according to your culinary desires and enjoy a variety of the island’s cuisine.
Be sure to spend some time at Mongoose Junction, the main shopping center offering a wide range of shops, galleries, art, gift items and eating establishments.
Wharfside Village is right on the beach in Cruz Bay by the main ferry dock and is another go-to destination for shopping.
The Marketplace is home to Starfish Market where you can find gourmet foods, a pharmacy, a hardware store, as well as other shops and services. It is open and airy, and has good parking.
